Costco serves more than 105 million members worldwide as of 2020, and is one of North America’s largest retailers, averaging $166 Billion USD billion in sales per year. Over the last two decades Costco has transformed the retail world and has grown to become the world’s most successful warehouse club.

The soup market in North America is on an upswing as consumers opt for healthier food choices and, premium, clean-label and novel flavors. Moreover, a major factor driving the growth of the soup market in Canada and US is the increasingly busy lifestyle of people who want the convenience of ready-made meals.
